Adelaide Strikers v Melbourne Stars Preview

Last years losing semi finalists take on each other in the second game of the Big Bash, we expect a one sided game.

Glenn Maxwell

Melbourne’s Top Batsman is a tricky market to predict with the likes of KP and Wright at the top of the order, anything can happen. Our money for the first game is on the Big Show who has a big role to play for the Stars and he’ll show the Strikers bowling attack no respect, so we’re on him at $5.5. The middle overs will be a struggle for Adelaide as they look set up top with Laughlin and Richardson, but we fear Maxwell will be able to take apart Rashid and the other bowlers.

Tim Ludeman

Tim Ludeman had a great competition last season, belting 253 runs, and he’ll be key for Adelaide’s chances again this time round. We’re backing the opener ahead of Sri Lankan legend Jayawardene to top score at $4.5 best odds.

James Faulkner

Strikers have a fairly long tail so, with that in mind, we’re backing Faulkner to be the top bowler for the Stars at $4. His mix of slower balls at the death will be far too much for the struggling Strikers batsman who will be trying to hit the ball out of the park.
